Guest Speaker & Performer

Henry Olonga

Former international test cricketer and award winning singer, Henry Olonga, is this year’s guest speaker the Melbourne Prayer Breakfast.

The versatile Henry, a strong follower of Jesus, was a Voice contestant in 2019 and an international cricketer.

Olonga represented Zimbabwe in Test and One Day International cricket as well as performing with the likes of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and the SAPOL band.

After fleeing Zimbabwe in 2003 following his protest against the Mugabe regime Olonga went on to play in a team of retired cricketers in England.

Olonga has been very forthcoming about his Christian faith throughout his life and the number of instances God intervened to save him from certain death.

Converting to Christianity at the age of 16 at a boys’ camp, Olonga has been steadfast in proclaiming his love for God and how God can similarly intervene in the lives o f those bold enough to place their trust in Him. With a dash of humour and also some sobering stories Henry Olonga loves to share his faith and perhaps even sprinkle a song or two into the mix.

Henry Olonga lives in Adelaide with his family.

Melbourne Prayer Breakfast

Uniting Melbourne’s Leaders since 1984

Part of a global tradition, the Melbourne Prayer Breakfast is a networking event bringing together people of faith, business people, politicians and students. During the early morning event you will enjoy musical entertainment from a talented artist, pray for those who live and work in our city, connect with others and be inspired by a keynote speaker.

What a positive and meaningful way to start your day!

Our hope and experience is that the Melbourne Prayer Breakfast will trigger ongoing conversations about faith and the impact we can make in our city.
